Stefanie Lawton is hoping the third time is a charm
- Updated: February 28, 2013
The 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, presented by Monsanto, will mark a third appearance at the Canadian Curling Trials for Saskatoon’s Stefanie Lawton – and she’s looking for a major breakthrough this time around.
In 2005, Lawton bowed out in the semifinal to eventual champion Shannon Kleibrink in Halifax. Four years later in Edmonton, the Lawton team was again in the running late into the week, losing a tiebreaker to Krista McCarville.
Lawton is a three-time Canada Cup title-holder, winning the event in three of the past five years. The most recent victory, at the 2012 Capital One Canada Cup in Moose Jaw, qualified the team for the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, Dec. 1-8 in Winnipeg’s MTS Centre.
The 2000 Canadian women’s junior curling champion represented Saskatchewan at the 2005 and 2009 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. Lawton will be joined in Winnipeg by third Sherry Anderson, second Sherry Singler and lead Marliese Kasner.
Anderson skipped her team to the gold-medal game in the second edition of the Canadian Curling Trials in 2001, losing to British Columbia’s Kelley Law.
